Hi, I have bee on fosamax for 9 yeats, basically unchecked. I even asked my doctor from time to time about the side effects and she said BRONJ was very rare and I needed to treat my osteopena. Last Friday I was diagnosed with BRONJ PHASE 2,I had minor gum surgery a year ago and it never healed. I now have exposed bone and frequent infections and pain. This is all taking place under a 12 year old implant. Surgeons are debating removing the implant, but wouldn't that just expose more bone?
